    Welcome to the Master Programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies

    The Hugo Valentin Centre welcomes students to the start of the autumn semester 2015.

    Of a total of 163 applicants – including 120 foreign students –, the 18 most qualified have been admitted to the programme, which starts on 1 September. The Master has a distinctively international character and is the only one of its kind to offer a comprehensive approach to the area of study. In addition to in-depth analysis of  a large number of case studies, the programme also contains theory courses from a variety of scholarly fields such as political science, peace research, sociology, psychological and social psychological. Comparative analysis and the relationship between decision-making at the central level and the local dynamics of violence is in focus. See the Master's programme page for more information about the content.
